XXXII Korps-January 1944

Post by Richard Murphy » 05 May 2002 13:01

Another conflict of sources;
According to Lexicon der Wehrmacht, 34th Inf. Div. was part of 4th Pz. A.'s XXXII Korps at Tcherkassy (Presumably outside the pocket.), but this would appear to be a typo (Perhaps they mean XLII Korps, which was encircled.) because the Korps was redesignated LXXXI Korps in June '42 according to the listings on this site.
HOWEVER, an old posting by Doug Nash on Jason's forum (German Units at Cherkassy Jan-Apr. '44, 27/8/99) doesn't list them inside.

Interestingly, 112th and 57th Inf. (Which had both served with the 34th as part of Nehring's XXIV Pzk. the previous Autumn.) had been transfered to XLII Korps and XI Korps respectively before being cut off.

Any guidance would be most appreciated.

Regards from the Park,

Thanks Christoph,
I will be going over to Feldgrau in a minute (Doing the usual Sunday night rounds!)
What do the maps you mention show? Deployments down to what level (Divisional would be very helpful, especially as finding the composition of individual Korps at anytime involves an awful lot of two-ing and fro-ing!)?

Regards and thanks from the Park,

Rich
